West Bromwich Albion’s deal for Tom James is reportedly off.
According to BBC Sport, Tom James’ move from Yeovil Town to West Bromwich Albion has been cancelled after he failed to agree personal terms with the Baggies.
Darren Moore’s side have added a few new faces this summer, with Sam Johnstone, Jonathan Bond, Kyle Bartley, Conor Townsend and Harvey Barnes all arriving at The Hawthorns.
Yet with the start of the Championship season just hours away, West Brom are still pushing for new signings, and another defender has been on Moore’s wish list.
Yeovil Town talent Tom James has been a top target for West Brom, and a £400,000 fee was agreed earlier this week, and a move appeared to be a foregone conclusion.
However, BBC Sport now claim that the deal has been called off, as James was unable to agree on contract terms with the Baggies, and has returned to the League Two club.
James, 22, came up through the ranks with Cardiff City, spending almost 13 years with the club before signing for Yeovil in 2017 after just one first-team appearance for the Bluebirds.
The right back – who is also capable of playing at centre back and left back – has been impressing with Yeovil, and looked set to make a move to the Championship before next week’s deadline.
Now though, his move to West Brom appears to be off, and it remains to be seen whether any other clubs swoop in and attempt to secure his signature in the coming days.
